This book is a novella of the Christmas in Garland series.  When Sanford finds that the women he loved walks out on him right before Christmas six years ago, he has turned into a scrooge on the Christmas spirit.  His grandmother decides that he needs to bring Christmas back into his heart and love the holiday season again.  She sets out to do a 31 day of Christmas and Sanford agrees to it, just to make his grandmother happy.   When Natalie, his best friend who has lost touch due to the girlfriend that left him, steps in and works with the grandmother to make Sanford see the happiness and joy Christmas brings.  Sanford never sees what is coming his way..... 

If you are fan of Hallmark Christmas movies then this book is definitely for you.  It is a fun and delightful read that pulls at your heartstrings for happiness and joy for all the characters.  I see this as a Holiday movie in the future.......

About the Book

 Can Scrooge find love from a friendship gone cold?

Sanford Stone cut ties with his best friend, Natalie, in favor of the love of his life … a woman who ended up walking out on him just before Christmas. Six years later, Sanford can’t bring himself to celebrate Christ’s birth with any joy. Little does he know, his grandmother and her companions have dubbed him the Scrooge and intend to help him overcome his bitterness and find happiness again.

The only thing that has hurt Natalie Dunivan more than Sanford cutting her out of his life has been watching his long-held grudges slowly destroy the man she has always loved. Together with Ms. Carol, Natalie devises a plan to reach out to Sanford.

Sanford accepts his grandmother’s challenge to celebrate Christmas for 31 straight days, but he didn’t count on her plan involving Natalie. Can his family and friends help their Scrooge see the error of his ways, or will Natalie’s presence only make things worse?
